Pupil Premium Funding

Principles

  • We value the individuality of all our pupils
  • We are committed to giving all of our children every opportunity to achieve the highest standards
  • We take account of pupils varied life experiences and needs
  • We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and have high expectations of all our children
  • The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter to us
  • Our school promotes the individuality of all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age , disability, gender or background
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time

 

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended impact of this funding is to accelerate progress and to raise attainment.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.   All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of any work done.
